Construction and Engineering Solicitors
IBB’s dedicated Construction and Engineering team provides industry-leading legal support to clients within this highly regulated and challenging sector, across the UK and internationally.
Our Construction and Engineering solicitors are experienced enough to have seen most things before and are quick to think of solutions for any new situations that arise. That’s why IBB Law has become the preferred choice for many experienced purchasers of construction and engineering legal services in the UK today.
Tailored legal advice to add value to our clients projects
At every stage of a project, our aim is to provide clear and practical legal advice to reflect the commercial realities that our clients face every day. Our goal is to help bring our clients plans to fruition on time and on budget. We won’t dwell unnecessarily on matters that cause delay and additional expense.
Our Construction and Engineering team works closely with IBB’s leading Commercial Real Estate, and Residential Development teams. This work embraces procurement advice, and contract drafting (liaising with interested third parties such as funders where necessary) so as to ensure that matters are properly set-up from the very beginning. Also, many clients look to us to provide general advice during the course of their projects, and to help them properly operate their contracts. We find that early strategic legal advice is a very effective way to add value to our clients projects and to help them avoid disputes.
Swift effective Construction and Engineering dispute resolution
Where disputes are unavoidable, we find that our early intervention in the project can help to ensure that our clients are well prepared and ultimately successful in any later Dispute Resolution process (such as Adjudication, Expert Determination, Arbitration, Mediation, or Court Litigation).
Our ultimate objective will always be to find a positive solution that protects our clients commercial interests and reputation.
We are highly skilled and experienced in alternative dispute resolution methods, including Adjudication, Expert Determination, Arbitration, Mediation, and Court Litigation.
Extensive experience acting for all types of clients
We serve a wide range of clients including banks, insurers, occupiers, property developers, house builders, main contractors, specialist sub-contractors, engineering companies, logistics companies, construction and engineering professionals, local government and not-for-profit organisations.
Many of our clients have a wealth of industry experience and are seasoned purchasers of construction and engineering legal services. Equally, we recognise that the industry is quite bewildering for many of our other clients, and it will be their first time.
Regardless of experience and background, we firmly believe that all clients will benefit from our wealth of industry experience, which enables us to propose effective solutions to solve our clients problems.
We are recognised by our peers and praised by our clients for our expertise and our ability to deliver clear, commercially focused advice. The team is ranked as a Band 1 firm in both Chambers & Partners and the Legal 500.
